of a premium on staying focused. you have thousands of waves of questions from us. news cycles going by. what was the one thing if you had to keep your eye on the prize, day after day, what was it for you? >> well, in terms of feedia, there is still a huge power in television. local television. national television. people watch that. that's still how people get their news. that's part of it i think. the twitter piece, i'm sure this is the same for the romney team. there is a strategy around every day. every news pusher. what surrogates are saying on top radio. that was very big challeng >> and they're all tweeting. that typically news has. >> let me ask you. it felt at times the conversation was happening in that tiety character space. there was a big campaign going on. there's a turning point. somewhere in the campaign where the conversation over here got it wrongs. there one that you can think of? the convention speech was purposely done in the way it was done. it was not the most exciting speech or the president's race speech. as the most amazing speechlt however it gave the american peopl

this problem. i do not think he has used the language only high-income people have to contribute on the revenue side. i do not think he has ruled out something which through based blogging would call for some contribution. >> the president will that out a dent in his budget he had this past year. >> that is right. but he has not in his current rhetoric. he does the said the problem should be solved just by high income taxpayers. >> let me ask about another component. capital gains and dividends. what about that side of it? the folks that what bloomberg and do a lot of investing are interested in what happens to capital gains. if you move it up to 20% or talk about higher figure, what would happen to investment in this country and how much money could degenerate? >> rates today are 50% for capital gains and dividends. it is already baked in the cake that is going to 18.8% for high- income taxpayers. they are often overlooked in this discussion but it is already a given. there has been a debate about whether to raise them further. i think your -- you're already seeing some evidence and. you will
you just mentioned, but someone who basically has used elections in non-democratic ways. he is elected in but then takes seriously non-democratic measures internally. that is a very difficult situation to grapple with in terms of fundamentalists. >> from my european point of view, the so-called unipolar moment has led us in nato, led the west, led the united states, in my view, to over emphasize the possible use of the military. i think over the last decade we have been forced to acknowledge the fact the obligation of military force tends to solve, at best, military challenges, but if he were faced with a political problem, you need a political solution, which means more than just the military. that appears to me to be a growing consensus in our community. and that leads me to the first question about what the gentleman over there asked about development and the military. as a practitioner of diplomacy, i find that the last decade and have shut have taught us one clear lesson -- and a half should have taught us one clear lesson. it was not so difficult to get nato to go into the balkan
with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this past year was $1.1 trillion. if you are not going to raise taxes, what are the things you can cut to get close to erasing a $1.1 trillion deficit? >> we should be about $230 billion, but we have to look at agencies that were created that are not meeting up to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at these duplicative programs. we have got to move away from baseline budget to zero-based budget. >> the gao ha
together which is focused on us. do not focus on what divides you as politicians, focus on us. i don't offer misplaced optimism often. when you are in washington you can get pessimistic really quick. but i think there is a pathway on immigration reform, a long-term debt reduction deal. continued education reform. that is really the test to the president and lead 76ers in the senate and the house. can they come together post election. for a period of time put your needs and the needs of the country first. i have a great deal of confidence that we will do that. [applause] >> thank you for having me back. it is great to be back at the university of delaware and thank you for coming. when we look at this election in 2012 republicans should not be diluted about this. this is a big night for the detectives. also look across the country in the u.s. senate. i will quote john mccain -- it is always dark before it is completely black. if you look at the election there are a couple of things that are just outstanding to focus on. the last presidential candidate who achieved 60% of the white vo
of social media is you guys could discuss having an effect on our basic business. i mean i use -- we had a -- "ted" was our film, and seth mcfarland had a million followers before it ever came out. we were able to, our marketing group was able to, sort of along with seth, treat ted as his own personality. first he became a personality, then ultimately he maim -- became a star, whether it was through facebook or twitter the he had his own, ted had his own blog, and so before the film came out, we were able to create this personality that really never existed before. so when the movie came out, he had as much, ted had as much rogsnition as brad pitt. that's reality of it. so i think all the social media haves -- has a real impact on how we market things and sell our product. when you see, i forget, i watched it, jimmy, you telle, was a documentary, i guess justin bieber was discovered on youtube. >> right. >> i thought it was pretty extraordinary. i saw a young agent who saw this kid on youtube d went and convinced his mother to sign him. i think that's fantastic. when whether he -- when w
you very much for being with us here. >> thank you. it is good to be with you. >> what are you looking for tuesday? what are you keeping an eye on? >> everyone in journalism is looking at ohio. just like the candidates are examining ohio very closely. we're also looking very carefully at virginia in colorado. we did talk about virginia. trying to figure out these very close state. iowa was a state we have been watching. ohio looks like it is going more gracefully toward president obama. we will see that holds up by election night. then all those building blocks are to build after that. we are doing the same sort of examination that everybody is doing. >> 1 poll shows this dead heat. democrats are saying the republicans are chasing fulls gold. >> you have to wonder if it is a little too late there is definitely a hurricane santeedy element to all of this. that could definitely be something that even though you do not want to politicize a disaster, you could be looking at a lot of democratic voters are not coming to the polls because they cannot are they have other things going on. that
roundtable, andrew baumann, ed goeas, thank you for being with us. pollsters, they say, this is the truth, it has always been equal parts art and science. guest: i do not know if i agree with that. it is more science and art, that is why we are paid to do what we do, and we think they are generally pretty accurate. that is why you see polls from different sides of the aisle, some polls have been different results. i think that there is a little bit of hyperbole to call it four pollsters. maybe they are having the worst week. guest -- host of this poll shows mitt romney being ahead six points -- host: this poll shows mitt romney ahead by six points in florida, another one showing obama up by five points. [laughter] guest: same weekend? there are two polling firms out there, that there have been real questions about. going back to the point that andrew made, you have to make an assumption that some point. is turnout going to be like it was in 2004? which was even between the parties? or will it be more like 2008, with seven points for the democrats? my preference is to look in between. but
of secondary -- he came out and told us back in august at the republican convention that he was very committed to tax reform, he wanted to work on it. max baucus, chairman of the finance committee, also committed. it could be interesting. now that hatch has said i am not going to run again and he got past that, he could kind of do what he wants to do. he could do the deal maker that he is and wants to be. we will see. it depends on how much flak he gets from other people. >> one thing i wanted to talk about before we go to questions is the overall tone in the house. i would not be surprised, even though the republican majority is a little smaller, and some of the people who boehner lost are moderates and those who would cut deals, there may be people, particularly as a freshman move into leadership positions -- jim langford is making a bid for policy committee chairmanship, which is sort of a springboard for a lot of people. there seems to be a general calming down among some of but fire breathing. there is potential for some mischief on the floor. as dan neuhauser reported in the house sectio
